Flipgrid offers Scheduled Dates as a way to make Topics available or close them for new video submissions on specific dates. The active date will change the Topic Status from Hidden to Active. The View-only date will change the Topic Status from Active to View only. View Only Topics are view-only, so learners can watch videos, but cannot add new videos Learn more about view only Topics)
